Seeking the Truth of Things

Al Gini is a philosopher who writes for real people about things they actually care about: the meaning of work, moral courage, choice, sin, laughter, and leisure. In Seeking the Truth of Things, he explores his lifelong quest for wisdom. Part memoir, part introduction to key philosophical concepts, this book resoundingly establishes philosophy at the center and not the periphery of the public square.Read a review of this book!
